Don't you love it when you find a way to use an item in an unexpected location?  Usually pearls are used to add sophistication to a card or layout.  Today I am going to share with you one way I found to use them to add some dimension to whimsical projects.  These were created for Creative Charms, home to some absolutely fabulous embellishments!

If you look closely you can see I used two different shades of pearls (Gradient Pearl Stickers in White & Gradient Pearl Stickers Assorted) and a variety of sizes as well.  I started with the biggest and just started filling in from there.  

I did a similar thing with my cloud on this layout using some of Nikki Sivil's cute Summer line.  I also used butterflies and flowers from Pink Blooming Garden and Blue Blooming Garden included in the May Kit of the month.  They match this line perfectly and added just the right touch.  I used the Gradient Pearl Stickers  in White for my Cloud.  I used a variety of sizes but stuck with one shade of pearls for this one.  You can judge for yourself which you like better.
Since I was on a roll with the pearls I decided to incorporate them on one more card.  This time it's in a more typical sophisticated look...but still a different use.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
